New year, new post! Today’s is short and sweet, sharing our AlleyCorp thoughts on the year to come along with an invitation to join us at our robotics event in NYC next week - plus some insights from our time at CES!
Hot off the press: AlleyCorp thoughts on the year to come
If you missed it last week, we posted our quarterly AlleyCorp newsletter looking back over 2023 and ahead into 2024. Kevin Ryan kicked us off with his thoughts on the venture ecosystem, followed by notes from each of our general partners. Dig in here.
